Rodong Sinmun Demands Removal of Concrete Wall Dividing Korea into Two Parts

 Pyongyang, December 28 (KCNA) -- There is nowhere else in the world such high barrier as concrete wall dividing the Korean Peninsula into two parts, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in an article.
    It goes on:
    The world people are of the view that the peninsula is inhabited by the homogeneous nation rare to be found in any other part of the earth. It is the greatest tragedy in the history of the nation and a shame on it for Korea to remain partitioned.
    The concrete wall was built as a symbol of division and showdown on the peninsula. This was a product of the U.S. crafty scenario against reunification, its heinous plot to create "two Koreas" and the despicable acts of treachery perpetrated by the south Korean military dictators, pursuant to its line.
    The military demarcation line and the concrete wall extending in the area south of it are cancer-like barriers physically blocking the improvement of the inter-Korean relations and hamstringing the efforts to achieve peace and reunification.
    The situation on the peninsula is inching close to the worst phase owing to the U.S. persistent moves to preserve the defunct armistice agreement (AA.)
    It is the political barrier standing in the way of improving the DPRK-U.S. and north-south relations and achieving peace and reunification of the peninsula. And the military demarcation line and concrete wall are the physical barriers blocking the solution of the urgent issues of the nation.
    If the AA is replaced with a peace treaty as urged by the DPRK and the military demarcation line and concrete wall are removed, the demilitarized zone, the forefront of the north-south confrontation, will turn into a peace zone and a bright prospect be opened for visits, exchange and economic cooperation between the north and the south.
    If the south Korean authorities sincerely want peace and reconciliation between the north and the south, they should pull down the concrete wall, to begin with. -0-
